DC Public Schools -- high school enrollments (2012-2013 school year)
In a posting on Friday ("DC high schools: capacity versus enrollment"), I commented about pre-1950 high schools being constructed to accommodate an enrollment of at least 1500 students and how most DC public schools have significantly less than this number, leading to more schools than necessary, and some unneeded construction for replacement buildings.
This table lists only those schools that are considered traditional high schools. Roosevelt and Ballou have alternative high school programs in addition to the enrollment figures listed. Phelps is a "vocational" high school, Ellington focuses on the arts, and McKinley has a technology focus. Banneker and School Without Walls are magnet high schools.
Data is from the DC Office of the State Superintendent for Education website.
